And as we’ve discussed in previous columns (such as Audio Mastering Basics: Taking Your Music That Extra Step), mastering is an art form in itself, and is best placed in the hands of a specialist. But even expert mastering engineers can only accomplish so much, and it’s largely dependent on the raw materials they’re given to work… View this post

(Volume 17, Number 5). Specific examples of compressor and limiter settings can provide a valuable starting point when using them to process instrument and vocal sounds. Compressors and limiters have become to the recording engineer what lens filters are to a camera operator: a way of controlling dissident sound or light elements… View this post

    Gary Zandstra 10/03/16 02:25 PM,
    This article is provided by Gary   Sitting in the tech booth during a service on a recent Sunday, I had an “a-ha” moment. Not a big one, but still a good lesson. We had traded worship bands for the day with our sister church. Our band was playing at their place, and vice versa. One of our front of house people, Justin, traveled with the band to do the mixing. Just as our service began, I received a… View this post
